OMG.. I just gotta have a go in here...
Firstly, some of you sound exactly as I imagine those who once believed the Earth was flat and when someone told them it was round, well, you lot have
shown the remarks that were made.
As for the Earth now being flat (again) It would seem we have the two way flat/round argument all over again.
I've noticed a few points (and I'm sure there are loads more) that you all seem to not have considered.
4. point of view
Firstly, for this to work out to be flat, lets take a distant view.. our galaxy, along with countless others are flat (to a degree). Have any of you
ever seen a picture of a round galaxy?
If round objects are so easily formed in space, then why not galaxies too?
Are black holes round or flat?
Our Galaxy is spinning around a black hole. I beleive it was Stephen Hawking who realised that as you get caught in the pull of a black hole, you will
be slowly flattened out and stretched. You wouldn't notice it, but a far away observer would see you become pulp.
Now, imagine the Earth slowly being flattened out and stretched as we go around the black hole.
Time would give us no factual evidence that the earth is round or flat. Time is only relevant to our current understanding.
Anyway, this could make the Earth into a 'record' (you know, those black disks before cd's) But the 'record' Earth does not just have one groove
going around it to the centre, but it is criss crossed with billions of multi directional lines.
These lines would then, in theory, allow travel anywhere 'around' the Earth.
You only seem to go around the earth as that is from your point of view in your present time/space/dimension relevant to your direction of travel.
If you decide to 'orbit' the earth in your space ship, then you change your perspective in time/space/dimension.
The entire universe could possibly be a flat disc (record) and it is the multi dimensional facet relevant to point of view that makes all the
So in theory, the universe could be made up of slices seeing as almost all galaxies have a black hole at their heart which are all stretching out and
flattening every object that orbits each black hole.
Go outside and stand in your garden. The ground around your immediate vicinity is flat. Look over your fence and you can see hils, mountains and
valleys.. none of which are flat. Until of course you are in any one particular vicinity then the ground becomes relevant to your
Perception through changes in light and our human ability to understand.
Fly up 60 miles and you fail to see all the hills valleys mountains..everything appears to be flat, except for the 'curvature' of the earth. But
you're only seeing a curve because of your time/space dimensional co-ords.. whereas in reality, the Earth is flat and stretched out due to the
gravitational pull and spinning of the galaxy around a black hole.
WOW.. as crazy as all that sounds, i hope it makes some form of sense..
If anyone can do the math on that I'd much appreciate it..would be a wild theory to test..
Myself... is the earth round or flat?...hmmm.. who can say.. does anything really exist? Am i really here?
Well, there's my theory thrown into the mesh.. sift through it and see what you can chew on..
